chances. we don't have any big storms, that's for sure, in this seven-day forecast. we've had clouds for much of the day, but no rain anywhere close by. 61 degrees right now, still mostly cloudy. the winds only five miles an hour and right around the same temperature we were yesterday. it's 52 degrees in pottstown, 53 in mount holly, 51 in lancaster, but milder elsewhere, and it got well into the 60s in allentown because there was more sunshine there. sunshine in the poconos, too. the clouds were thicker down in southern delaware and extreme south jersey. that will not be the case tomorrow. we're going to be getting warmer. today we got 65, just like yesterday. 73 tuesday, and then a couple of days in the mid 70s. what about november overall? look what happens on an average year, the high goes from 61 down to 50, and the sunrise gets later. the sunset earlier. the days just keep shrinking.
but the overall weather pattern is a mild one, and so i'm predicting that there will be way more days with above average temperatures than below. we got a cold front every week or so, but overall four to six degrees above normal for temperatures and probably below normal for precipitation this month. doesn't mean anything about the winter, but this month it does. here's the cloud cover thinning out across pennsylvania and pushing that rain that was to our south even farther to our south, so there's no threat of any of that. now as we go through the next couple of days, of course, we're starting off with the mild air, we have a weak system coming in on thursday. you can see just a slight chance of a shower there. not very impressive, but the warm air is impressive, because well into the 70s and stay there, friday could be the warmest day of all. then the cold front comes down. look, there's just no doubt about this, there's no doubt that it's going to be warm through the rest of the week and
there's no doubt there's going to be colder air on the weekend. lots of times there are a lot of uncertainties in weather forecast. in this case the general trend of warm all week and colder over the weekend, you can count on that. 48 degrees in philadelphia, 42 north and west. and during the day tomorrow with a lot of sunshine, temperatures getting into the 70s. average high is 61 remember and look at these temperatures. 75 for wednesday and thursday, slight chance of a shower thursday. maybe the warmest day on friday. then a chance of some showers on saturday. ten degrees of a drop there, another ten on sunday. so sunday's kind of chilly. a cold wind and monday stays chilly, too, but it's going to warm up after that. hey, i'm john clark, we're live at malcolm jenkins' big event tonight. we'll have him live here one on one talking about the big game
this is the xfinity sports desk, brought to you by xfinity. your home for the most live sports. >> hey, everybody, i'm john clark. we're live with malcolm jenkins with his big event for his foundation. how about this weekend, you're on a bye and see the giants and cowboys lose, so now you're only a half game out of first place. do you get the sense that you really can still accomplish what you want to do this year? >> yeah, i think when you look ahead to the schedule and you kind of look forward to the opportunities we have coming up, i think, you know, we can still get done what we want to, and, obviously, it starts with winning the division, and we're in a good spot right now, but before we can look down the road, we've got to correct the here and now and i think this bye week was a good time for us to get rested up to evaluate what we've been doing and figure out going forward. this week is going to be a huge
week of practice for us, huge week of preparation as we get ready for another divisional game. >> yeah, heading to dallas sunday night, big game. they've lost five straight without tony romo. how do you not overlook them based on the fact they are not doing great things offensively right now? >> we beat them last time, you know, and i think that's really all it takes. this is a game that we need, and like i said, it's in the division. they got dez bryant back, obviously, they'll try to work him more and more into the offense. they still have jason witten and all the weapons and mcfadden is running the ball a lot better the last few games. they are doing some good things. defense has been playing lights out and the last time it came down to which defense made the most plays and i think their defense did. it's a huge task right now, nothing we can take lightly. we're not in a position to sleep on any games. >> real quick, how important is this event for you tonight, your foundation's event, you're going to have this as a regular staple in philadelphia. >> yeah, this is our second year of doing it. we want to build some long
lasting programs here in philadelphia. we don't want to do things that are one-time events that leave the city. we want to plant some roots here in philly for our youth and so fundraisers like this allow us to do that in this community. we have a lot of fans that are very, very passionate about football and one of my passions is giving back to the community that supports me. this is how i do it. i'm really appreciative to everybody that comes out. it means a lot to me, my teammates, and everybody who sponsored this event, because like i said, it's really just giving back to the community that give us so much. >> it's called blitz, bow ties, and bourbon. he's bringing the blitz and the bow ties. he's not bringing the bourbon, just for the record. malcolm jenkins, thank you so much. thank you very much, eagles, cowboys sunday night here on nbc 10. we're right back after this.
it's an indoor playroom with a twist, designed to help sick kids feel they are outside. gives them a small break from the difficulties of being hospitalized. the $750,000 pledge from the johnmy m. foundation made the playroom possible. the foundation was started by a family in honor of their son who died when he was only 3 years old. well, let's take a look at the seven-day forecast. hard to believe it's the beginning of november. the average high temperature this time of year is only 61, but look how warm it's going to be for the rest of the week. we got to 65 today, so you'll definitely notice the difference tomorrow, plus the sunshine, then in the 70s the rest of the week. we do cool down over the weekend. sunday will be a lot colder than what we're going to be seeing for tuesday through friday. >> but near 80 on friday? >> yeah. some places will get close to 80, then even after the cool spell on sunday and monday, it may start to warm up again next week. >> another rebound possibly. all right, glenn, thanks so much. for all of us here at nbc 10,
